fx fan

My son too wanted to see the FX back in the roads because he thinks that FX's are sexy. I told him that he can take over the repairs once I swapped most of the parts... He was only 10 years old here and was disappointed because I wouldn't let him swap the bigger parts like front suspension because both bikes were unstable and and could easily crush him if the bikes fall down. The truth is I can let him swap the parts but pushing the bike to where the chain block is was a time waster. I had lots of stuffs to do that day and if only I had time... 
I should have given him the chance to play with it... 

two dead bikes

They weren't really nice to look at at first but I was determined to put one back on the roads. When I was in my late teens (80's) I promised myself that someday I'll hunt down a Kawasaki FX400 for myself and luckily my wish got answered. The bike on the left had papers but is in really bad condition so I swapped the fuel tank, front suspension assembly, muffler, rear tire, foot pegs, carburetor, plastics, etc. I didn't rush swapping parts and doing that took me about a year. It was like my lunch time project...

Two dead Kawasaki FX400

This is all where it started... One crashed FX400 that flipped on it's back and another dead FX400 with lots of missing parts.
